Let’s see, where did I leave off? Last week I confessed that I’m scared of my sewing machine and all about the no-sew Halloween costumes for my kids. Hugo is all set to blast off in his rocket costume, so this week I’m turning my four-year-old Lulu into a giant pink frosted doughnut. It’s pretty sweet, check it out:

I have to say, I never thought a neon pink pool float and some giant pipe cleaners could turn into something quite so adorable. What do you think? Would you dress your kid (or yourself) up as a giant pastry?
